Life Imitates Art (Somewhat) in Kansas City Hospital Shooting


A
gunman was loose in a large Metro hospital after having shot more than half a dozen people.


Police arrive and seal off the building and send SWAT teams inside to rescue those trapped and hurt.

It's all resolved by 10 p.m. local time Thursday night when the gunman on ABC-TV's 'Grey's Anatomy' shoots and kills himself.

At around the time 'Gray's' was ending- Kansas City emergency radio tones out the report of two people shot in a parking lot of the old Baptist Memorial- now Research-Brookside hospital in the 6600 block of Rockhill Road.

This shooter raced away from the scene in an undescribed vehicle and unlike the TV show- both victim's injuries were non life-threatening.

The hospital's emergency room was shut down for several hours while police investigated.
